Whether you are returning to therapy or have never been before, taking that first step can be scary, yet life-changing. We all struggle with times in our lives that challenge or overwhelm us. If you're ready to make changes in your life or want to try to figure out why you're feeling stuck, sad or anxious, let me help. I take pride in helping my clients overcome challenges and achieve happiness in a supportive, non-judgmental, and compassionate setting.

I have experience working with substance use issues, anger, incarcerated individuals, children, teenagers, adults, couples, trauma and grief.
I believe therapy is a process that takes effort from both the client and the therapist working together to achieve the client's goals. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other therapies, I show my clients how they can replace their current thoughts with more positive and adaptive thoughts, which will change their mood and behaviors. I believe that clients have control of their treatment and can achieve a lot more than they think they can. I will work with clients in providing the skills that will help them achieve their goals. I am licensed in both Iowa and Nebraska and can diagnose co-occurring disorders.

I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families to address complex life issues, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, mood disorders, adverse life events, ADHD, grief and loss, relationship issues, and substance use.
Life is a journey. How often have you heard that? As we find our road through life, we all need inspiration and guidance. Having an outside perspective to navigate that journey can help us view our path through a different lens. It is my goal as your therapist to create a safe, supportive, and accepting environment for you to share your story. I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for therapy. Whether it's learning coping skills, practicing mindfulness, or just having someone to talk to, I get it. Life isn't easy and you don't have to tackle this journey alone.

I prefer to work collaboratively with my clients in treating mental health and substance use issues.
Therapy can be life-altering. Scheduling the first appointment is intimidating, but it can significantly improve your quality of life if you open your mind to it. Engaging in therapy with a qualified therapist can enhance your ability to handle life stressors, overcome distressing emotions, and deal with difficult relationships. It is my mission to provide a healthy, supportive therapeutic environment for my clients so they can empower themselves to take control of their lives and increase their emotional well-being. I believe you deserve to feel good about yourself and your surroundings. Let me help you achieve that.

I am able to provide substance use and co-occurring evaluations for Nebraska Probation, the court system, and DOT evaluations.
Establishing sobriety can be difficult, even If you've been to treatment multiple times. Or maybe you are struggling to watch a loved one that is using alcohol or drugs. I also work with people who experience stress related to other mental illness like anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and trauma. If your unsure about what to do next, or anxious about talking to someone, a phone call or an email are great places to start.

I utilize interventions rooted in evidence based practices: attachment style parenting, healing from trauma, and substance use counseling.
Let’s come together to discover your courage to grow, adapt, and prosper! Therapy is a beautiful process that empowers us to deepen our self knowledge and make breakthroughs in whatever is holding us back; whether things have gotten too difficult or you’re in a longstanding battle of feeling unwell. Your experiences, relationships, mental health and physical health can all have an impact on how you show up in your life. These experiences can build up over time and erode our sense of peace and confidence. Our relationships become strained and we begin to feel more isolated.

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
